Character Concept Art


Photos of Completed Product


HeadGives information about the head of the costume. If reviewing a set of ears, the answers would also go in this section.


Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

Nothing pokes me, although the part where my nose is supposed to rest is too shallow, so it squishes my nose a little bit. The ventilation is pretty good, and the vision is as good as most.

Appearance Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to look at with regard to material quality, design, how closely it matches the concept, etc.

The symmetry is perfect, everything looks great regarding her shape. I requested that there be less cheek fluff like most cats, and the suit turned out great. The shaving is very even as well. The ears are stiff, which is not a problem unless someone at con pushes them forward or back. It matches the concept art very well. The eyes are toony, and are my favorite part of the head. The one and only problem here is that the teeth look like they’re 3D printed, and glued to the mouth. So at times I worry that they’ll rip out with the slightest tug on the jaw.

Hands and FeetGives information about the hands and/or feet of the costume.


Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

The hands fit perfectly, and the paw pads are secure. The feet are a bit big, but I can still walk around without fear that they’ll fall off. The seams are fine as well.

The fur color matches the rest of the suit. The symmetry is fine, and the shaving is even. The color of the pads is off, but it’s not a major problem at all

TailsGives information about any tails the costume may have.


Wear Satisfaction How satisfying this piece is to wear with regard to comfort, fit, material quality, etc.

The tail is perfect. The straps are very strong, and it slides right on to my belt. There are no rips or tears.

The colors really pop, and the symmetry is perfect. I love the little curl at the end, so the tail just barely touches the ground when i’m standing. Shaving is perfect as well, and the tail is very fluffy and soft.

OverallHow satisfied the reviewer is with the overall buying experience, including their interactions with the maker and the resulting final product.


Product Satisfaction How satisfied the reviewer is with the overall look and feel of the costume in its entirety.

How was your concept art realized?

The suit matches almost perfectly. There is a slight error with the location of the stars on her hands, but I really don’t want to send them out because I’m worried I won’t get them back.

How well does everything fit together and match up?

Everything works! The colors match, everything fits, that’s all perfect.

Overall Project Quality

I’m very satisfied with the suit. It’s an adorable style, and nothing’s ripped or broken.

Purchase Process Details the interactions between the customer/reviewer and the maker of the item with regard to the buying process.

Initial Contact

The first time contacting them was a breeze. They responded very quickly

Maker Response Time

Sometimes it took an hour, other times it took a week.
I didn’t really mind until it came close to time

Maker Professionalism

this is where all my negativity comes from. They were very unprofessional. When I ordered my suit in June, they told me it would be complete in August. When August came, they said it would be complete in October. I didn’t mind, because I didn’t really need it until January, and they seemed very confident that they could compete it. In October, they said they would include a bodysuit free of charge to compensate for my wait, and they said it would be shipped mid December. When Mid December came, they said early January next. I told them repeatedly about my deadline, and they said it wouldn’t be a issue. They day before the deadline, They said they’d overnight ship it. On the day of the deadline, they said they’d ship it that night. My deadline was January 27th, and I received it February 1st, completely missing my most important deadline.

Project Completion Time

Every single deadline was missed. They would constantly set a window of time for completion, and then move it back when it was missed.

Final Comments

The pros are the quality of the suits. The suits are absolutely adorable, and well made. I wear Nova all the time, and I love her. What made me rate this maker so low was the deadline. When they told me that Nova would be completed in early January, I looked at their commission list. They had way over 25 suits to complete, and mine was number 19. This is way too many for any suit maker, even full time.
If they thought that they’d miss the deadline, they should have told me. If they had, I would’ve given them a good review. But they led me on time and time again.
